Keeping things neat and organized around the house is challenging, especially now that we’re spending the majority of our time at home. To declutter your living space, it’s all about making small choices, and here are five ways to make your home look more organized.
Ditch Open Space
Instead of having open spaces like open shelving and open television units, store your basic, non-personal items in boxes. That way you won’t have to look at items like tape and light bulbs on a daily basis.
Group Things in Defined Spaces
We all have more random junk than we know what do with, so store them on tabletop trays so their placement looks intentional. You can place your keys, jewelry, candles, and makeup on trays that will be displayed around your house.
Have Lots of Light
Light helps create the illusion of bigger spaces and will make even the smallest areas look bigger. It seems counterproductive to add more light to a room that’s cluttered, but you’ll be surprised at how good lighting can open the room up.
Store Away Wires and Plugs
Exposed wires and plugs make any room look messy. When possible try and store wires behind sofas or television units or under rugs.
Get Rid of Items
Probably the easiest way to reduce clutter is to get rid of items that you don’t use and keeping items that are useful.
